A veteran of the comedy scene, yet barely out of his twenties, Ahir has spent more than a decade honing his craft and is now an expert in the art of finely crafted, super-intelligent heartfelt satire. His latest shows – Control and Duffer - have garnered him a deserved pair of nominations for Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe and it showcased all his hugely linguistic flair and performative verve as he tackled big ideas of globalisation, fascism, empire and milk.
